I had a LOT of weight to lose. So I set myself a goal. When I reached my goal, I would buy the dream bass guitar that I always wanted. I'm proud to say that I play it every day, and it's a motivator. Every time I play it, I do think about the journey to get it, and it does keep me motivated to get down in weight again. It's pretty cool actually.
"Losing weight is never about eating as little as possible"
"You wouldn't worry so much about what others think of you if you realized how seldom they do.

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!
